The 8th Annual Brian Muha Foundation Night of Champions Dinner and Auction will take place from 5:30 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 26 at St. Charles Walter Commons, 2010 E. Broad St. in Bexley.
“Join us friends! It’s working – we are fighting the battles and will win the war. But we need your help. Join our Night of Champions,” said Rachel Muha, founder and director of the Brian Muha Foundation.
The Night of Champions is the foundation’s main fundraising event and helps to pay for the services provided to children in need, such as The Run the Race Club, the Day School, the Run the Race Farm as well as nutritious food, a calm environment, food, guidance and love. There is never a charge for any service.
In 1998, Brian Charles Muha was a student at Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio. He wanted to become a doctor. On May 31, 1999, two assailants broke into Brian’s off-campus house at random and killed Brian and his friend, Aaron Land.
Brian did not live or die in vain. His kind and charitable spirit lives on in his family and friends who are now committed to helping others in his name because his mother, Rachel Muha, founded The Brian Muha Memorial Foundation with the core principle of ‘Overcoming Evil with Good.’
Run the Race
The Run the Race Center, part of the Brian Muha Foundation, is an after-school and summer program for inner city young people.
“We offer them a safe haven so they don’t have to be on the streets doing things they really don’t want to do. We offer a food pantry, dinner, Bible study, open gym, basketball league, art, computer, library, music and tumbling rooms, chess club, book club, board games, tutoring and homework help; everything a child needs to grow up healthy and become a good, productive citizen. Everything we offer is free of charge to the children,” said Muha.
Night of Champions
The Night of Champions is the main fundraiser for the Brian Muha Foundation. This year’s event is bigger and better than ever and offers something for everyone.
